Last season Vale were drawn against Hartlepool United in the first round and beat the Victoria Park outfit emphatically by a 6-2 score line at Vale Park.

Striker Ben Williamson bagged a first half hat-trick and fellow forward Tom Pope scored a brace. Michael Brown got the Valiants’ other goal.

That result sent the club through to the second round where they faced Sky Bet Championship outfit Cardiff City.

The tie signaled the end of Vale’s participation in the competition as they were beaten 3-2 by the Welsh side.

Although Michael O’Connor did score the club’s Goal of the Season that night, firing into the top corner from all of 40-yards out. Below is a small reminder of that strike.
